Barbara Hensley is alive and well in Rockwall, Texas I have missing in action since September 10, 2012.  A very short version of a very long story is that I had a double knee replacement on September 17.  That is itself should not have been a long lasting event but due to complications which had nothing to do with the actual knee replacements but a series of non related infections.  Two different REHAB stays resulted me in not getting back to my home until right before Thanksgiving. Actually I have missing in action for seven months. I am sharing this with my awesome friends in ActiveRain because I wanted you to know that I am here to stay.  You are all part of my life so watch for me and reconnect. I am attending the blogging camp that is going on now and it is great.  Things have chan...

It was pure hail at my house this morning in the pre-dawn hours!  My time of the morning is 5:30 AM, yes, that's right!  I normally get up about that time!  I thought my house was exploding this morning before time for the alarm.  WOW, the noise was coming from every direction!   I jumped up and flew to my window to see what was the matter!  The sky was solid white and it appeared that giant sized pop corn was popping and bouncing on my patio.  The stuff was quickly piling up around my house and yard.  It was pure hail!  Two had a half hours later I was leaving and snapped the pictures of the white stuff that was still hanging around.  Driving by around noon I saw that much of the stuff was still there.  It had been over 90 degrees yesterday but I have mounds of frozen stuff in every co...
